Caregiving Story

My Client

Age:61
Location:San Francisco , CA
Cared for by:Mona Romero
Years of Care:3

 

I have worked as a companion caregiver for a woman that had become suddenly disabled due to an accident. It created hardships for her and her family, forcing them to relocate to San Francisco and live in a new environment. She had to re-learn how to walk after repeated surgeries, while living with chronic and debilitating pain. I have become close to her as I have gotten to know her. I try to be a source of support and compassion and a link to the outside world for her. The caregiving work I do feels meaningful.
